My birthday cake by Ruth
It's not my birthday just yet, but my friend Ruth had me over for dinner for my birthday tonight. It was lovely - her fiance Israel cooked us dinner of chicken kiev and roast veges (pumpkin, potato, onion and garlic) with garlic bread.
However, the highlight was the cake that Ruth baked for me:
It was a chocolate cake filled with boysenberry jam and covered with chocolate icing and hundreds and thousands, and it was deliciously fudgy and moist. I am also very proud of Ruth because this is the first cake that she has baked in years. I feel honoured to be the recipient of this cake.
Israel put the hundreds and thousands on, and if you look carefully at the photo at the top of the post, you will see the letter "R" (for Ruth!) in the hundreds and thousands.
Here are Israel and Ruth enjoying some cake and conversation:
What a beautiful birthday treat - thanks Ruth and Israel!
